Stop Apache.
Copy c:\svnrepo to e:\
Update your Apache config and any other files that have references to
c:\svnrepo to point to e:\svnrepo
Start Apache

Curious as to what you mean by c:\svnrepo being a "shared drive". The
C$ administrative shares should be disabled by default or at least
tightly restricted, and you shouldn't be accessing the repository over
the network using file:///.

Of course, make sure you have backups before doing any of this, and
you'll be trying it first on a test system, right?
